Grout cleaning is not fun and this bright white stuff shows every a bit of a blemish. It is not hard to get tiles clean and gleaming, but it is more difficult to clean the grout between them.
It’s passable, hard to get to, easily stains – the list continues. But don’t be irritated, here are some helpful tips on how to do tile and grout cleaning making your least favorite house chore a little more tolerable.
Begin first with lukewarm water and a nylon brush. At certain times, a little amount of water and elbow lubricant is all you need. Doing simple spraying of some warm water onto the grout, then scrub it with a stiff-bristled brush using a circular motion. This might be enough to keep away light surface dirt and reveal the white grout beneath.
You can utilize water and vinegar solution for mildew stains. Spray this mixture onto the stained areas, pause for 5 minutes then scrub it off using a stiff-bristled brush. If necessary, rinse the area with warm water. You can also make use of a paste made from baking soda and water on heavier stains. Thoroughly mix enough water into some baking soda to form a thick paste. Spread out this paste onto the affected area and directly scrub the area with a stiff-bristled brush, then rinse with warm water.
For tough stains, use hydrogen peroxide. Spray hydrogen peroxide vertically onto the stained area, or you can make a paste using baking soda. The moment you have the hydrogen peroxide on the grout, wait for several minutes, then scrub it using a stiff-bristled brush. Rinse the area using water when you are almost done.
Another, use store-purchased “oxygen bleach” cleaners. Try to find for a product that indicates they will work on grout, or that mention “oxygen bleach” on them. Open the bathroom fan or a window, and wear a pair of rubber gloves. Use the product according to the listed instructions. Most products will require you to sit on the grout for 10 to 15 minutes, and then you have to scrub them using a stiff-bristled brush. Once the time is up, rinse the cleaner off with warm water.
Steam your grout returning to its original white color. Start with the steam pressure set to the lowest setting, and work out to a higher setting whenever needed. Use the brush attachment for stubborn stains.
For severe and extreme cases utilize bleach diluted with water. Bleach is a harmful chemical to breathe, keep the bathroom fan turned on, or you may open up a window. Don’t forget to wear a pair of rubber gloves, safety goggles, and some used old clothing. In addition, fill a spray bottle with 1 part bleach and 10 parts water. Spray the mixture onto the dirty grout and wait for almost 2 minutes. Scrub the area using a stiff-bristled brush then finally rinse with water.
Another, have some baking soda and bleach paste for extreme cases. Mix 2 parts baking soda and 1-part bleach to make a thick paste. Spread this paste onto the dirty grout and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Scrub the grout using a stiff-bristled brush, then wait for further 5 to 10 minutes. When you are done, rinse the paste off using water.
